Word has a little box symbol that allows me to hide and unhide cell borders and row borders in a table, which is very useful for many kinds of layouts. Is there a way to do this in Libre office?

I could not find a one-button solution, but if you select the cells in your table you would like to hide or unhide or to edit the borders, right-click the mouse, then select Table Properties, then select Borders then you'll see icons that control the display of the borders. If you want a single icon to click on then select it to be on the menu bar.

Select the respective range of your TextTable.
Open the context menu (RichtClick).
Choose 'Table Properties...'
Go to the tab 'Borders' and edit whatever you want.

BTW: Simplify the list of tags. writer + table + borders and propably range should be enough - and more informative. Tags are made for filtering. (If you click on one, you get shown only topics also using the respective tag. An atomized universe of tags may spoil the functionality.)

Sorry. Posts crossed.
